Paper Wont' Load

Hello. I'm trying to print on my Canon MP480 for the first time and I can't get the paper to load. When I open the door on the front of the printer, it seems the paper is too low for the rollers to reach. It looks on the picture online as though there's a plastic flap maybe that holds the paper up, but I can't find one on my machine. I tried putting the paper on top of a book to get it to sit higher, but still the roller wouldn't grab on to it.

Do not put anything in the tray but the paper. Most printers are shipped with moving parts taped so they don't move and break during shipping. make sure all tape is removed by following the quick setup issued with the printer.

    The paper isnt supposed to load from the bottom flap. On the top, backside of the printer you will see another panel that opens. Load from the top so paper is standing up, and align the paper spacers with your paper. Voila!

My Canon MP480 says the paper is jammed when in fact it is not. how can i reset it?


Turn off the printer.
Inspect the location or tray the printed paper ejects to. If the stuck paper is visible manually remove it.
Remove all paper trays and any paper that may be stuck between the tray and the printer. If the stuck paper is visible manually remove it.
Open the printer door that allows you access to the printer ink cartridges or toner and look for any stuck paper. If the stuck paper is visible manually remove it
Turn the printer back on. If you continue to receive a printer jam error try repeating the above steps again. If issue still persist and you see no paper that is stuck in the printer it's likely your printer is experiencing another hardware issues and we suggest contacting the printer manufacturer for additional assistance or repair.In Case You Still face Problem and Need Online Assistance Then Please Follow Us For On : Canon Printer Support

THe printer won't accept the paper-what to do!


Are you using the3 same brand of paper of have you changed it?

Quite often the reason the paper wont load is that the pare quaslity is too shiny or designed for photocopiers rather than printers.

INK also plays a role in this happening. Look at thew rollers and see how much ink is on them, clean off with Isopropyl alcohol. Use some on the pare guides as well These are the wheels in front of the paper loading area

Hower,m either get the same brand of paper you had originally or try some differenet paper suitable for printers.

Pixma mp480 jams paper!!! It occurs on the left side Ive tried different paper and it continues to do the same thing I really disappointing because I just bought 4 months ago and I thought canon was a good...


Please try this and also try cleaning the printer and the paper rollers that it has.

  1. Turn off the printer.
  2. Remove any paper trays. Inspect them for wrinkled or damaged paper.
  3. Also open the back cover of the printer if this model has one.
  4. Open any other doors that give access to the printer's paper path and to the toner or ink cartridge.
  5. If necessary, remove the toner or ink cartridge. Place it away from light/ sun light to avoid damaging it.
  6. If you find a piece of jammed paper, remove it by holding it with both hands and pulling firmly. The goal is to keep the paper from tearing. If several pieces are jammed together, try pulling out the middle piece first to loosen the jam.
  7. If the paper does tear, try rotating the roller gears manually to free the paper. Don't force anything, though. Do this step especially if the jam message comes up repeatedly without any obvious paper jam, there may be a small tear of paper inside.
  8. Ones the printer is free of paper Replace the toner or ink cartridge and paper trays, close any doors you opened and turn the printer back on.
  9. If the printer paper jam message still appears, then there is still some paper in the printer. Reinspect the paper path.
  10. see alternative if the problem is still not solved.



alternative :
Load a piece of thick paper, for example photo paper and press the resume button (may be diffrent button on diffrent models) a few times to the printer picks up the paper and puts it through the machine.

Paper won't load. and Stops printing before it can start.


Try turning the paper around. Some times the corners of the paper get slightly bent and the paper wont load.If turning the paper around does not work, switch your paper. Hope this helps.
